- Power Generation information: If you have an on-site power generator that you use to generate and distribute power (for more than emergency uses), or use a boiler to generate heat for your processes (excluding space heating), you may have to report these emissions. Please visit the Power Generation Sector Page to view these calculators.
- The calculators listed above are the most current versions. It is strongly recommended to download the calculator each time you want to use.
- The calculators above can help you identify which priority substances (chemicals) your facility uses or releases, and estimate the amounts of these chemicals to see if you need to report to the Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw. Depending on the processes your business uses, you may need to use more than one of the calculators on the list above – if this is the case, you can add up the amounts using the “Calculation of Totals” calculator.
- These calculators are provided solely as an aid. They may not apply or all or parts of your business operations. You can choose to use these calculators or other tools that may be applicable to estimate chemical use and emissions. The City of Toronto makes no representation or warranty as to the applicability of these tools to your facility or to your obligation to comply with the Environmental Reporting and Disclosure Bylaw (Municipal Code Chapter 423). It is the responsibility of each facility owner or operator to take the necessary steps to ensure compliance with the bylaw.
